Database Thesaurus

A database thesaurus, also called a "controlled vocabulary," is a list of the Subject Terms that are tagged and often hyperlinked on the item records to help you find information on a topic. You can search the thesaurus to find the best term to describe your topic, also called the "preferred term." For example, the Subject Term college campuses is tagged on all articles that are about college and university campuses.
